Example of DFD for Online Store (Data Flow Diagram)

Showing the connections between different components of same system you can make data flow diagram (DFD) to display the relationships and the interactions of different departments in the shop, for example. So making the DFD for the online store you have to mention all involved parties such as Administrator, Customer, Visitor, Manager, etc. To create this diagram can be much easier with help of the layouts from the libraries in the Solution Park. Using the existing examples from the libraries can simplify the work of drawing the needed flowcharts and diagrams for any kind of businesses.

ConceptDraw DIAGRAM allows you to draw a simple and clear example of DFD for Online Store using special libraries, provided by Data Flow Diagrams Solution:

  • Data flow diagram (DFD) library contains 15 symbols for drawing both context-level data flow diagram and Level 1 DFD.
  • DFD, Gane-Sarson notation library contains 12 symbols of Gane-Sarson DFD notation.
  • DFD, Yourdon and Coad notation library contains 22 symbols of Yourdon/DeMarco DFD notation.

To produce professional and standardized data flow diagrams, most analysts will turn to a specialist drawing software, that can automate certain processes and cater for presentation and file sharing needs. ConceptDraw DIAGRAM extended with the Data Flow Diagram solution, is ideal for this scenario. Within the solution is a comprehensive vector stencil library, offering the full range of icons from both notation sets mentioned above. Features inherent to ConceptDraw DIAGRAM make the diagramming process simple and efficient — one click commands allow users to select and place icons, intuitively place connector arrows, and share their document in a range of presentation modes or file types.

An added bonus is the wealth of learning material available, particularly in relation to data flow and process diagrams, and a number of other solutions that support similar topics.

Adding the Data Flow Diagram solution to ConceptDraw DIAGRAM gives you a powerful tool to help analyze and devise data flows for any business process or system.

Bus Network Topology →

If you have a small budget to design a computer network, you have to be very careful. One of the most cheap technologies to implement is a bus network topology, however it has many disadvantages. For instance, if the network cable is somehow damaged, the entire network won't work. This diagram illustrates a so-called "Bus" network topology. This type of network arrangement means that each computer or other device is linked to a main link (bus). The end nodes are shown as a circle. The links to the bus are depicted as solid vertical lines. The bus is shown as a bold horizontal line. This diagram can serve as a template for creating logical or physical network diagrams. The set of vector libraries supplied with ConceptDraw Computer and Networks solution contains the symbols of all LAN and WLAN elements required for creating network diagrams of any configuration.Bus Network Topology *
